As a reaction to Senator Corkers tweet:
 "Senator Bob Corker  @SenBobCorker

It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning."


On the opposite of adult day care they tell tales like those (unfortunately I can't link to Wikipedia due to protection of minors).
But everyone remember this tale collected by Brothers Grimm:

(T)rumpelstiltskin


I think this should be his new name. it fits.

And now he's challenged Tillerson to an IQ test-off.

Yeah, right. Better get some crayons ready for Little Donny!

This is the start of our gentle time, Gladys...our season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, close bosom friend of the maturing sun. On the farm there was almost a sense of the veld sighing with relief when autumn finally set in. We certainly did. Man and animal. Months of grace while we waited for the first rains.

Once again, H. L. Mencken proves to be a prophet.

Quote

The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre -- the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.

The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
